I'm not sure I buy that logic, RF. Was it fully funded because they drafted players that fit within their limited budget or did they draft the players based on who was the best at the time? Jered Weaver was available at the time, but he wanted big bucks.
Heck, with the exception of Jeremy Sowers, JimBo pretty much signed most of his first rounders. But there's no doubt that the draft was underfunded during many of those years.
